wCrea surprise mTw in thriller

What announced itself as just another national WCG qualifier eventually turned into a major surprise, as Denmark sees wCrea claim number one spot in front of mTw, to represent national pride at the upcoming WCG 2010 Grand Final, in Los Angeles.

Against all odds, wCrea has taken the best out of mTw, not just by giving them a good run for their money, but by actually surpassing them in an exciting match-up. First map into the dispute, train, wCrea definitely took the situation in their own hands by bagging the pistol round as well as the 5 consecutive rounds which followed. mTw sought to quickly get back into the game, yet failed, seeing the half-time score standing at 12-3 to their rivals' advantage. Switching sides didn't do Danny 'zonic' Sørensen and his colleagues any good either, as wCrea quickly closed stakes at 16-10.

The following map, tuscan, saw a totally different face of mTw. This time around the guys were far more composed and in control of the match. After claiming pistol round as T, they continued dominating up until 6-0, when things actually started moving in the other direction. wCrea came back strong and closed first half at 8-7 to their advantage. Switching sides, mTw pulled their tactics together, seeing themselves in the position of closing the match at 16-8, after successfully bagging 9 consecutive rounds.

Given the momentum they were in, not many people would have predicted the eventual outcome of the match at the beginning of the third deciding map, dust2. Slowly but surely, the situation levelled up, seeing both teams exchange rounds equally. wCrea took both pistol rounds, yet mTw bounced back each time leaving no room for error. First half was closed at 8-7 to wCrea's advantage, something that Michael 'Friis' Jørgensen and his colleagues eventually capitalized upon when they switched sides. Dust2 ended in an exciting and unpredictable 16-9, seeing the dedication of the underdogs succeed.

2010-08-29 00:57
mTw is milliard times better.
2010-08-29 05:38
I can see that you do not know anything about danish CS. wCrea is a really strong team :)
2010-08-29 13:07
yes they are, but mTw are suppoused to be in the top3 of the worlds best teams ..
2010-08-29 17:06
that was what i said ? :D
2010-08-29 13:02
No, you said wCrea is a _great_ team. #164 said it is a _good_ team. imo mTw is a great team, whereas wCrea is still just a good team, until further proved.

2010-08-28 18:11
I guess mTw.dk won't get a slot now right? :x
2010-08-28 18:12
Only wCrea will go in the finals :) Dk have 1 slot :)
2010-08-28 18:14
:/ Too bad for mTw.dk. What can I say wCrea have really good aimers and a amazing awp guy and they need to pracctice now :) They are really good.
2010-08-28 18:15
Yeah, I think soo. We will see them in the finals :D
2010-08-28 19:03
so doz mtw =D
2010-08-28 19:32
But they lost :P
2010-08-28 19:33
mTw is playing really bad if you put their performance with whimp and mje to the table. hope they can get a better teamplay next tournament.
2010-08-29 01:07
sunde had, 1.4 hours on steam :D soooo but it is nice, now mtw know they have to practice!
2010-08-28 21:56
Maybe he played with non-steam !! :DD
2010-08-28 21:57
WCG without fnatic and mTw? Sad news for us fans. WCG SUCKS 2010.
2010-08-28 18:12
without fnatic why?
2010-08-28 18:13
fnatic refused to play the qualifier, for a few reasons but mainly because they didnt think it was fair only 1 team got a paid flight from Sweden/Finland/Norway combined. Other reasons where how the payments were going to be made, and the use of team sponsors in clothing and in game tags.
2010-08-28 18:15
Read previous news of hltv.org, mate.
2010-08-28 18:17
fnatic will join WCG 2010, we'll see.
2010-08-28 18:20
they cant you genius
2010-08-28 18:22
Why? They won Sweden WCG. didn't they? www.hltv.org/news/4536-fnatic-win-wcg-sweden
2010-08-28 18:25
They didnt platy the nordic WCG Qualy man ;)
2010-08-28 18:27
So what? That tournament's just for 1 paid ticket. fnatic will go to LA by their money.
2010-08-28 18:28
You're not familiar with WCG policy are you? WCG is like Olympics, you can only participate if you qualified.
2010-08-28 18:30
I don't understand. wCrean won Denmark WCG and they'll go to LA fnatic won Sweden WCG and they'll go nowhere. Is is weird?
2010-08-28 18:31
Norway, Finland and Sweden had their nation qualifer, then 2 teams from each country got to Nordic qualifer, where all 6 teams for slot, but only winner got travel and accomodation paid, fnatic refused attending Nordic qualifer saying it's not for that only 1 team got paid, so fnatic lost their slot and h2k (now Lions) was invited to event and earned slot. SK won Noric qualifer fnatic wanted to boycot Noric qualifer, they thought other teams would do the same and more slots would be paid, but they failed. Denmark had got their own qualifer and winner got slot paid understand now?
2010-08-28 18:43
You wrote too much. When you finished your comment, I've already got it. Thx. :D
2010-08-28 18:49
They wont participate man, why would they not attend the nordic finals if they could easily win them, and now pay for their trip..? Do you know how much money attending WCG in LA means..?
2010-08-28 18:31
Both fnatic and SK Gaming will be featured at the Nordic WCG qualifier finals. (which they didnt attend)
2010-08-28 18:27
wCrea didn't attend Nordic WCG and they'll still go to LA, right?
2010-08-28 18:29
Becausse Denmark had their own qualifier ;)
2010-08-28 18:32
And sweden had the tournament too =))
2010-08-28 18:33
No man, you aint getting it, Sweden, Finland an=d Norway had national finals, to see who aattended the nordic finals, but Denmark has its own qualifier, with a team getting free travel, nothing to do with the other nordic qualifier. Thats one of the reasons for fnatic not attending, they find it unfair.
2010-08-28 18:38
So, it was not fair from very beginning. WTF!
2010-08-28 18:39
i don't usually say stuff like this, but you're not very bright, are you?
2010-08-28 21:18
wow he got it at last :p.

OK, I get it. Thank u
2010-08-28 18:43
YES IT IS, but they had their own qualifier apart from the nordic one, cant you get it...?

2010-08-28 20:17
Still , we'll have tyloo atleast :D
2010-08-28 18:16
Why the heck is that? Does CHL suck because Liverpool isnt in it? No. The best teams join the tournament, and the rest wont. I dont see why that sucks.

WCG yet again shaping up to be a lacklustre event, so far no mTw/fnatic/mousesports? I'm sure some other top teams will be missing aswell. :(
2010-08-28 18:19
i dont know what all you guys are saying. wcrea was the better one so wcg is stronger with these guys attending
2010-08-28 18:29
mTw is more consistently one of the best teams in the world, while wCrea has potential (and even realised it this qualifier) more often than not, mTw are the far superior team.

I love Danish CS scene. mTw supremacy for a long time and then boom - a new team is being created, and that team beats mTw on their first lan :) This time it was a little bit different, but still the pattern stays pretty same.
2010-08-28 18:36
wCrea is a team of some of the best in danish eSports. No surprise that they would won, cause they have been played very well. - I think t´hey can make something huge at WCG.

I expected mTw to win and do something big in the world finals. CS is just so random sometimes. It's not really surprising though, wCrea have some of the finest players in Denmark.

You forgeting SK and FX :). They will not let Na'Vi win easily (hopefully) ;).
2010-08-28 20:02
Ye maybe, But it is so sad that it´s only 1 team from top 3 and mTw won the WCG 2008 It will be easier to SK to win the gold medal. GOGO :D
2010-08-28 21:29
Well, look at that. SKs chanses of winning wcg 2010 just rose :)
2010-08-28 19:40

2010-08-29 13:29
don't you think it's kind of important for the rosters to be included in these kinds of news posts??
2010-08-30 00:10
Its sad cause none of you know wCrea, its a team with ArcadioN which have been playing ALOT of years, since the beginning of SoA, in 2001 i guess it was, and then he plays with hes brother which is wazorn - + one of the greatest snipers in denmark FriiS, i dont know so much to suranGa but what i've seen he looks really good, sometimes he fails a little but i never think he have been into the big Cs scene until now.
